Dyeing with Candyfloss Dyes

This is my first video it's a first for me, I've posted posted the clip on youTube and then linked it to my blog. Wow! it worked. I only used my phone, as I don't have a video camera. If I say so myself, not bad for a first try.
I have a list of workshop dates on my website http://www.artisanthreads.co.uk/ This was a workshop dyeing with my candyfloss dyes. These are the same food colouring pigments that are used in Kool-ade dyes without the sugar and made in the UK. They are very easy to use without the need of any special equipment, suitable for wool & silk.
